    You might (probably are) be new to this whole HF thing but I really don't suggest you use a wire antenna for the net control station. Find some kid who has a beam or at least a vertical. If you use a wire half the stations won't be able to hear you.

    He can use a wire, but will need to be more careful about choosing the timing of when we have the best state-side, or good band. condx, etc. and having relay stations that can hear each other. None of them necessarily need to hear NC, as long as a check-in can be relayed to and from wherever the destination is.

    How about calling frequencies for young hams on all of the bands. that way we could meet and ragchew anytime. Nets are fun but they require you to be on at certain times. With calling frequencies we could call cq youth or something and know we have a good chance of speaking to someone who has similar interest

    You always want the net control station to be the strongest one out there. If there has to be a relay for every check-in that gets to be a mess and the net is rundown by callers.

    Yes, it may work; but no, it's not practical.
